Preben Fabricius Set of Two Easy Chairs in Black Leather
Preben Fabricius for Arnold Exclusiv, pair of easy chairs, chromed steel, black leather, Denmark, 1971.
A pair of lounge chairs by Fabricius. The very well formed metal frames hold a sturdy black leather upholstery, tied together with a rope. These very desirable chairs can be placed in the same range of quality and style as the famous, monumental PK22 lounge chairs by Poul Kjaerholm. The black leather seating shows an admirable all-over patina, which gives these chairs even more character.
Preben Juhl Fabricius (1931-1984) trained as an architect. His core principles were: perfection, aesthetics and minimalism. Although they has worked individually, as he did on this chair, it was as a pair with Jorgen Kastholm that he achieved great success. During the eight years of partnership they managed to create a wide selection of very high quality designs. The results were often minimalistic and functional designs in steel, glass and leather. Most of the furniture of Danish designer duo was produced by the German manufacturer Kill International. This type of chairs was produced in their home country Denmark by Bo-Ex.
